Get Ready for the Holidays - Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt Would be A Great Addition to Your Holiday Decor!


The Christmas Celebration Tree Skirt is a beautiful Judy Niemeyer pattern that can be used for a tree skirt, or for a table topper.  With a beautiful star center and flying geese all around, it would be an elegant accent to any room! This project has been made around the world, multiple times - it would make a great holiday gift!  Click here to order the pattern.  Here are two other examples of this project: 


I call this the "Northwoods" version, since the dark feature fabric has bear, moose, etc and the feel of a cabin in the woods.  The next version brings in more of the greens and purples, and it is so beautiful as well!

Kathi Carter, Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor, will be teaching this class at Always Quilting on Saturday, August 1st.  If you are thinking about taking the class, please register soon so we can make sure you have your fabrics cut and prepared prior to the class.  We'll have a special day where you can come in and work with us to do that.  You can click here to register. 

Kathi's beautiful sample is in our shop, and you will want to stop by and see it!  Hers is a table topper (it does not have the tree skirt hole in the center) and it is so elegant in rich reds, greens and golds. 

She also quilted it magnificently with gold metallic thread; here is a close-up of her beautiful quilting!  This is a fabulous table topper and you would definitely enjoy taking the class from Kathi!

Another great holiday project is the Seasonal Table Runner.  Of course it would be great in green and red and gold, but how about these other color ways?  It would be fabulous for any season!  Click here to order this pattern.  And if you'd like a kit, just let us know what you are looking for and we can customize it for you! 

And where did the time go - today is the last day of the Geese Migrations Book Tour Blog Hop!  We hope you are having fun, and seeing lots of beautiful Judy Niemeyer quilts!  Links to the participating Certified Shop are listed below, so make sure you stop by and visit them all.  You still have time to enter and win a prize - so many will be given!  Leave us a comment - what is your favorite quilt from the book that you've seen so far?

  1. It's a;ways so hard to choose a favorite... So far I think I like In Formation & Prickly Pear Cactus the best. I am currently working on my 1st JN quilt--Celebration. I'm a JN groupy now!

  2. I love anything Judy Niemeyer has done. Can't pick just one!

  3. HArd to choose one but I'm making Ripples and love the prickly pear

  4. Just learning to paper piece but I I want to make the prickly pears quilt. The whole book looks amazing. Thank you for sharing the giveaway!

  5. So hard to decide! Would love to have a copy of the book so I could make several!
